npower in Worcester is taking part in a nationwide 'Wear Your Shirt to Work' day to mark 100 days to go until the official decision by FIFA of who will host the World Cup in 2018.

npower is an official supporter of the England 2018 FIFA World Cup Bid, and will be urging all of its 12,000 staff to get behind the campaign. Wear Your Shirt to Work day also coincides with a tour of some of the potential host cities by a delegation from football governing body, FIFA.

Wear Your Shirt to Work day is an initiative driven by the England 2018 Bid team and involves employees doing just as it suggests; wearing the shirt of their chosen football team to work. As well as encouraging England football fans to back the bid and raising awareness of the bid to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the initiative is also designed to show the passion many in England have for football during the crucial FIFA visit.

Emma Collins, sponsorship manager at npower, commented:"As official supporters of the Bid, we are more than happy to support this campaign by the England 2018 Bid team. Wear Your Shirt to Work day is a great way to engage our entire workforce in supporting the Bid and to raise awareness of npower's involvement in it.

"We will be encouraging everyone to take part and wear their football shirts with pride to show FIFA that England not only has the facilities to host the World Cup, but the passion too."

England 2018 Chief Executive Andy Anson said: "It's great that npower is joining our Wear Your Shirt to Work campaign. The purpose of the day is to raise awareness of our Bid, have some fun, and to also mark an important milestone; 100 days until FIFA makes its decision about which country will welcome the World Cup in eight years time.”

FA calculations suggest that the prize of a successful Bid could be a massive £3.2 billion boost to the economy. npower's own research shows that more than 82% of bosses believe a World Cup in England would be great for business, 55% say it will deliver major financial benefit, and 63% say it would boost morale.
